Abell and Cleland HGV Safety Initiative

Central London has had too many fatal injuries involving cyclists and lorries, especially those involved in the Construction Industry. MPG are happy to report that all of our Supply Chain are involved in the CLOCS initiative which assures that HGV's are equipped with safety mirrors, cameras and side skirts to alert the driver of cyclists in their vicinity. Berkeley Homes are adamant that they will do all they can to support the Industry in reducing Injuries involving their workforce or Supply Chain and they sponsored an event on Tuesday 29th September involving themselves, the Metropolitan Police Service and O'Donovan Waste Disposal Ltd.

Commuting cyclists were given the opportunity to see inside the cab of an HGV and see the road from the drivers viewpoint, pointing out inevitable blindspots, although minimised by the mirrors and cameras fitted to the vehicle.
